Switzerland: Ban Urged on Eating Cats and Dogs
An animal rights group has petitioned the Swiss government to ban a traditional, if rare, practice of eating cats for Christmas dinner and turning dogs into sausages. Tomi Tomek, president of the animal rights group SOS CHATS Noiraigue, said 3 percent of the population still eats cat and dog. “You can’t report it to the police because there’s no law against it,” he said.
The Swiss are urged by American pet lovers to eat unwanted children for Christmas and turn homeless people into sausages.
